“I don’t want to get teary-eyed but I had this surgery because really I had no other choice. It was my last resort. When I started I was 397, I lost 218 pounds. Today I am 279 pounds. Still going and still working on it. My goal weight is 150. The bariatric surgery that I had was the sleeve. I had a gastric sleeve. I saw a little and was back for revision, I had gastric bypass. Both surgeries work successfully. Both of them did exactly if not even more than what I expected. So I’m still working on it and it is a life-changing experience. You can’t go back to what you’re used to. You have to come home eating healthier and wanting to live a healthier life.”
